report claims iran might be seeking to obtain a nuclear weapon how to run slams the allegations of the u.s. backed smear campaign bring in or make is now considering their country's cooperation. which they are calling a disappointment. what is north stream center's europe for the first time we hear from the man who's been in charge of the ambitious project former german chancellor gerhard schroeder tells us now why it's so important for all sides involved that's not special interview next. gerhard schroeder was charles love germany from nineteen ninety eight to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at north stream russia's new gas pipeline under the baltic states and europe mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gas per its good name. opinion pride with plants and we're not talking about russia's dependence we're talking about cooperation between
3:32 pm
russia on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector stream is viewed as a priority project both by russia and you because it's been part of europe's energy networks since two thousand and six not recognized by the european parliament and the e.u. council of energy instead of rossum from our peers from prada meant they were informed that the energy minister to nordstrom pipelines have already been laid what top of the third one will be added or what will be its capacity we haven't yet started my it we currently have at least two pipelines with the total capacity of fifty five billion cubic meters of me a question of whether a third or even forgotten all political would have to be answered by european stock holders as you know we have gazprom in the order and holland a sunni over france is g.d.'s who is in germany on and the a yes if we just don't like the investors decide to build a third and fourth part of the finals might be like i we're not talking about
3:33 pm
states like there's a and b. then you could know i don't know whether they will make such a decision as it was not part of my working mind of god. and thus brussels wants all russian energy companies not just gazprom to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the implications of that for gas problem and europe scrutiny. regulator integration is not the issue. of germany and the rest of the questions that need gas to sensibly reform that and. russia on the other hand has to sell gas to keep its budget in world war three so there's a. coded and getting a culture is a good thing for jay how to be happy to see european companies invest into russia and european markets open up the washing company that is a good free market economy does is good for the market truck what do you think of the recently you raids on gazprom and its partners in europe they think about just the or p i gasped i think europeans need gas to feel last as many years it's a dog with a political uncertainty in north africa but also good to have
3:34 pm
a stable partner that you can rely on for russia is one of the you know better than anyone else for insulation of it written recently switched from export to your old partner europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources and it's climatic conditions but more for him to get it's norway's going to survive but also russia's give us and therefore i think opening the market up on companies would be writing of what's actually been named so if we do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it got us is fords or just most of mine i guess it is so we have to admit that i very well i hope we will get over it it's understandable and says here opinion you need russia geopolitically but the reverse is also true it's not a question that the time has come to start cooperating on stop looking back at an ideological difference here again that is for the could russia switch supply east to china if brothels keeps up its hostility is a known as it were your evil minds of which is in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and europe and i hope
3:35 pm
russia never has to make a choice of these of the russian government is evidently pro european but europe cannot keep pushing russia away it hurts russians pride and we have to keep in mind that while russia has the alternative of the shipping to asia europe has no such alternative and europe's geopolitical position look only improved if it manages to enter a tiny hard to ship with russia one and at the same time grant only a recession to turkey and now would be a sound strategy aimed into the future of the rest. yesterday's debate i was under is the good doctor from guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the shortfall for europe wide us with a snake no that learn not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that trantor are you going to say again that you're a whole market is incredibly important for russia to get to budget balancing about other things therefore we're not talking about the kind of code and it was
3:36 pm
a big progress in shipping liquefied natural gas. makes europe less dependent on pipelines can that affect this project well let's go weaken it. i mean i think it would have a negative effect on a project that is europe liquefied gas market is quite limited and american there's no way to sally's in germany or poland has a developing market import is there it's in no way a danger for us that's not the reason i'm criticizing is the indication that there are alternative sources and the low spot prices and gas legitimacy of the five spot deals can be of no more gain the long term supply agreements in the short run but they do not offer stability very first a good for a period of a problem in the wake of the fukushima disaster germany is closing all its nuclear power plants do you support that and how will it change germany's energy mix transit have been damaged mind consider this me and my team but the people who originally negotiated that deal with our energy suppliers and we had agreed to make
3:37 pm
a sensible exit out of nuclear strategy that was followed by a short period when the federal government for our agreement should be overturned and of course they've since gone the other way and started supporting what i have negotiated with as does not mean a bridge technologies like nuclear energy cannot be used until energy efficiency is sufficiently developed but we need gas as an interim energy source for the sake of energy security and that's the reason we need to buy gas from new york from other cultures but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build gas power station has been more. with this e.u. debt crisis mr sarkozy says no euro no europe surely europe will survive without the euro so i'm the best i know for more and this is a quote from my successor in office works it works of course europe's going to have problems if the euro has problems but there's one thing you can be sure of i think the euro is going to survive as a common currency there even if irregular things turn out differently which would for a very important reason we will still have
3:38 pm
a united europe if i paid or program you would childs a lot when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency company. on those records your via i do not think that was our situation of the european commission its employees that had to conduct inspections they had let us know that we could take the responsibility for greece's e.u. a session on our cell phone and it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission by the national governments if we had made the decision to take greece in we cannot claim without having a firm proof that the information we got then was on diplomatically speaking not entirely correct very much keep in mind that the european parliament voted in favor of greece and the ship almost unanimously including the conservatives are going now trying to distance themselves from that decision making sometimes in politics you don't want to believe things that he wants condoned or actually happening universe
3:39 pm
for. either the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended which which is a matter kensi in progress if the visit it's pointless to talk about how things were in the past we're talking about for the region i hope we manage to keep greece in the euro zone so that's a new greek government would have to be nonpartisan uninfluenced by debates provoked by right when under that someone from the i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on it implement package if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing by locking. well a great deal of help from greece here or there is one point i would like to make because you should not be broken down not only does greece need budget discipline your which is of course trivial should what greece needs mostly are investments that invest in would be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently investing or group interest paid taxes in their own country i go instead of looking for investment opportunities or so on was a good enough for doubling is there
3:40 pm
a red line beyond which germany as they we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or does germany have a historic pit that europe has from. and again i'm not against discussing a red line the problem is that if you start to talk about a red line they need to eventually have to correctly dean in the region he's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe that have economic interest is easily explainable because forty percent of our export goes to the european union and beyond it is if those countries are hit by a crisis then so is germany your secondly what is the lesson we learned in the past and our prospects for the future dictates that germany is not strong enough geopolitical to play a significant role in a game where the u.s. is one superpower and an asian leader of the right in this case china is the other in new european state is in the i'm only one hundred you are can take on a role like that if that's why germany is interested in a night in the us that is not just because of the past with you but for the sake of
3:41 pm
our citizens future of that conference a lot of the small question many german people many finns are angry at having to pay. of a role that's enough for it seems i can understand that but i have to explain it very consistently to the current generation of political leaders clearly it's within our own interests to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on actually here if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people the new generation the prospects for long lasting. peace allies in europe. when you serve the german chancellor there was no question of receiving financial aid from china or russia directly or indirectly through the i.m.f. do you regret that's happening potentially and what would be the implications because think it doesn't look good i do not think we should feel bad about other nations getting stronger be they russians chinese brazilians south africans or indians it should not concern us because these countries offer us more opportunity
3:42 pm
to export our products as they develop a vehicle. but that's only the case if we stay better and stay more innovative when we fulfill our agenda of twenty china and sort out our social policies and germany is the only country that understood to be back in two thousand and three that for an aging country to maintain prosperity as it must provide for change i think of our i wonder if the rest of the evening states and i understood this a decade later i will manage to take the action needed to maintain prosperity eyes on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are deployed has problems over that something we started taking care of our problems in time it was a rest will regret it we can be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of all persons but of a nation orderings their golf pro to chairman of the board for the nordstrom gas pipeline thank you for speaking with.

3:51 pm
a chance but england resolutely held on for a confidence boosting with. little guy he didn't know my spine but we think we have to understand this morning it's a great thing for them free there we defended their commitment not to go out to their field of the large crowd because. we can only crowd were so we know it was a bigger world of particular. that we're very proud i'm very proud to live in st petersburg obama very proud for the fact that the fans he got an article one night we can celebrate about champions. staying as well and with a euro twenty two hour preparations now well underway in coach together karl says russia are improving with every game they play after drawing one one in a friendly with greece in athens on friday night as the head coach spoke with artie's which examples and i think is a really good test for russia today i mean you probably learn a lot from series match a very comfortable very somebody yell a lot of said you if you take. out of the team that we can play to departing the
3:52 pm
game will be good there will be show diggers a very physical team like. delivery for the future i mean high pressure i mean had a few divisions some in court. personally very valuable to that they were a part of the team and there's always appalled when they were not alone there. is. good result so that where i was please would have seen the first game is always difficult but i mean i am also i mean you've said you've got three games the head of the european championships in two thousand and twelve as a team progressing because you did look very good tonight as well we're progressing already from the from the beginning it is a real team and there's a reason i have also some problems to change. the lies and in genesis. three four. three goals. voted yes we improving yes but you have how i point to this as a coach do you have a sample scored because i mean very few coaches run europe can call on such
3:53 pm
a few group of players would you have done the last few years because your basic is based your score yeah definitely. the majority of the players knows what i want a see the big in the games. that's important and we can only do better still becoming high i mean obviously the likes of the shah in public change. he get figureheads of your team i mean how disappointing is it for years a head coach have been all getting a lot of game time in england and i'm into this weekend at a low played today ninety minutes. i didn't want to tell you this was wrong when this is back because as is important you become fit and sharp again so we are still timing of have a good in the right books you cannot get a long break until next year when you play on the second one will friendlies i mean which teams you looking to play in my time or not decide decided that there is
3:54 pm
a possibility of play in the if ever were but i don't know what's going to have a day off the result of the night of a loss for you know tonight against croatia probably one dear rendition of you and mr hitting. every question we will see if we can do that exactly. foxing is convinced he was the winner after the thirty two year old filipino defended his w b o welterweight title to a controversial majority decision of the mexico's one manuel marquez in las vegas. but it's bigger than i want to fight it now is very clear and you know i got most of the part of the barker saw. you said you want to leave absolutely no doubt however the audience has a doubt you think that you really left no doubt this time around that you beat market but we had our share of that market is not easy a point it is a good buy there but you know i want to. you know the guy just thought oh well
3:55 pm
meanwhile there was relief back here as fans of miller after the outcome was identical to the pairs last meeting in two thousand and eight despite a strong finish from thirty eight year old mexican lark has two of the three judges narrowly ruled in the filipinos favor of the third couldn't separate the two after the final round both fighters adopted a victory pose but accurate got the notes to the fury of the sellout crowd and marcus who stormed out of the ring but in the philippines victory was all that mattered. the point was equal but mark has launched a man you can't buy much used to see money much traction so much more i am surprised that he won but i am happy. despite mixed fortunes at this year's world championships to make is you saying bolt has been named as male athlete of the year for the third time by the international athletics federations well despite being the overwhelming favorite roles was eliminated from the one hundred meters in diameter for false starts however he cruised to gold in the two hundred meters and
3:56 pm
there's a help to make it set a world record in the field by one hundred meters really like. it was in the season but i promise next year will be better and the time to follow for regional says not. everybody can notice. bored and thought of people and. i don't want to make sense thanks for everything. and on the women's side the accolades went to sally pearson of australia who recorded the fourth fastest time in the history of the one hundred metre hurdles hunting impressive ten victories out of eleven races . again thank you everyone for coming tonight it truly means a lot to all the athletes here i'm sure because we work so hard for what we get it you know results in the sport and to have nights like this means a lot to us it shows that our results have been appreciated. and that's all the sports.
